1 Alternative Energy Solution Presentation Bethany Dunn and Josh Monroe APES 3 rd Period

2 Main Goals of Hydrogen as a Fuel Source Develop efficient ways to use energy Halt environmental impact by energy resource use Slow current nonrenewable energy resource usage Decrease energy costs Discover a source of energy that will last for billions of years

3 Overall Potential of Hydrogen Greatest potential of alternative resources in terms of protecting the environment Abundance of Hydrogen Hydrogen is in 93% of all atoms The sun produces Hydrogen

4 How It Works

5 Technological Obstacles to be Solved 1:1 Net energy ratio or less Stripping Hydrogen from fossil fuels and water Still produces CO2 Hydrogen as a combustible gas Hydrogen fuel cells need to be more durable under certain conditions content/uploads/2009/07/b4.jpg

6 Political/Economic Obstacles to be Solved Not efficient as opposed to modern uses of resources Willingness of public to change resources Fairly expensive to own and operate Development of a Hydrogen infrastructure to store and be able to deliver Hydrogen International Partnership for the Hydrogen Economy AustraliaIndia BrazilItaly CanadaJapan ChinaNew Zealand European Commission Norway FranceKorea Germany Russian Federation IcelandUnited Kingdom United States

7 Impacts of Hydrogen on the Environment Hydrogen has no negative impact on the environment Fuel Cells work without moving parts Hydrogen can be recycled by fuel cells

8 Putting it to use NASA is the biggest user of Hydrogen energy Starting to be more prominent in the automobile industry Ford fuel cell Focus BMW H2R Chrysler Natrium Fiat Panda Hydrogen GM Sequel Mercedes-Benz F-cell Honda FCX Clarity
